From the coming season, Sadio Mané will be on the hunt for goals for FC Bayern. The attacking star, who comes from Liverpool FC, is one of the top earners in Munich. It was previously said that he also left the Reds because the appreciation in financial terms was no longer given. But these rumors appear to be untrue.
He is by far the biggest transfer of the upcoming Bundesliga season: Sadio Mané. With the commitment of the Senegalese, FC Bayern not only increases the pressure on the established forces, but would also be prepared for the departure of world footballer Robert Lewandowski. According to “Bild”, Mané has long been on the road in his salary region, earning around 20 million euros in Munich according to a report.
The fact that the Senegalese international decided to join the German record champions because of this high sum, as has been speculated in Premier League circles in recent months, is apparently not true. As Bacary Cissé, the 30-year-old’s PR consultant revealed on French television, Mané’s salary was also very high at Liverpool FC.

“A player of Sadio’s caliber cannot earn the salary that is being talked about. The figures in circulation are completely wrong,” Cissé said on “TV5 Monde”. According to some reports, Mané only received six million euros a year from the Reds, other sources also wrote of a comparatively modest twelve million euros a year.
“He was already earning more when he came to Liverpool from Southampton,” Cissé said of the transfer, which took place in the summer of 2016. “He then renewed his contract in 2018 and his salary was much higher than the media figures,” added the PR consultant. In the end, Mané should have been one of the top earners in Liverpool.
In Munich he always does this with said 20 million euros a year. In addition to Lewandowski, only Joshua Kimmich, Manuel Neuer and Thomas Müller should earn in similar spheres.
At his presentation, Mané said he was looking for “a new challenge” at Bayern Munich. The Senegalese did not give any financial reasons.
